Cartamundi UK is launching NHS Heroes Playing Cards to raise funds for the NHS heroes working on the frontline in the nation’s battle against COVID-19.
The playing cards have already been printed and are ready to be sent to supporters as soon as this campaign ends. All supporters will receive the decks they have pledged for, whether we reach the full funding goal or not!
The specially crafted NHS Heroes deck features doctors, nurses and surgeons in place of traditional Kings, Queens and Jacks as well as the rainbow colours which have become synonymous with the pandemic, adorning windows across the nation.
Playing cards have seen a surge in popularity over the last four weeks as Britain looks for ways to connect and stay entertained during the lockdown. Cartamundi hopes the new NHS Heroes deck will raise funds for NHS Charities Together, with all proceeds from this campaign going to the charity. In addition to this initiative, Cartamundi has created a brand new website called www.stayandplay.cards, where you will find thousands of different card game rules available to play, creating hours of fun for the family. Playing cards are a perfect way to stay in with your family and connect with each other during this isolation period.
Daniel King, Cartamundi UK General Manager, says: “We’re desperate to do our bit in supporting the nation’s effort to battle this pandemic. That’s why we’ve created these very special NHS Heroes Playing Cards, our way of saying thank you to all the NHS staff and care workers working tirelessly in this battle."
“Our goal is to raise over £10,000 for NHS Charities Together and the amazing work they do. And we hope these cards will support them now during this crisis and into the future as we move forward to brighter days. ‘Cartamundi’ is Latin for ‘cards for the world’. Well, now we have cards for the nation, as we push through this together, staying home, protecting the NHS and saving lives.”
The NHS Heroes Playing Cards are available at £5 per deck (incl. shipping). There are also options to buy 12 decks for £50 (incl. shipping) or donate to the charity without a reward. UK only.
NHS Charities Together is a registered charity no. 1186569.
The playing cards have already been printed and are ready to be sent to supporters as soon as this campaign ends.

We want to extent a warm 'thank you' and give a huge shoutout to the talented JJ Illustrates, who's been essential to making this project reality.

IMPORTANT NOTE: To maximize the amount of money we can donate to NHS Charities Together, the shipping of rewards is restricted to the UK only, meaning that the NHS Heroes Playing Cards can only be shipped to UK addresses.
